Families First "Super Woman" talk cancelled

Due to a limited response, St. Joseph School of All Saints Parish has cancelled its Families First lecture series event titled "Super Woman," which was planned for tomorrow.

The school's public relations committee announced that it has not decided whether to reschedule the presentation, as overall attendance for the entire Families First lecture series has been low.
